At the close of another year the Committee have much pleasure in submitting their Eeport of the Liverpool Cancer and Skin Hospital to the donors and subscribers. The steady progress it has made in public favour may be estimated by the largely increased list of supporters, and the advantages to Liverpool and its neighbourhood will be best appreciated by reference to the number of applicants and the localities from which patients have come. For brevity we annex a comparison of the last three years : — In 1865 were entered 1,800, of which 1,120 recovered. ,, 1866 „ 2,724, „ 1,708 „ 1867 „ 3,164, „ 2,740 If those rem aini ng under treatment at close of 1866 be added to the past year, the number will amount to 3,826, and the weekly attendance, ranging from 530 to 750, gives us a total of 31,476 applicants during 1867. The Committee beg to express their thanks to the Corporation of Liverpool for so generously conferring on this Hospital an Annual Grant of £50, and especially to mark their appreciation of the invaluable services ren- dered to the Charity by the eloquent advocacy of its cause in the Council Chamber, as well as the large- hearted benevolence displayed to it individually on this and every occasion, by Mr. Eobertson Gladstone. They beg to notice also an important element in the 4 working of this Hospital, namely, the late fees, which amount this year to £90 10s. Explanatory of this revenue, it may he stated that although this Hospital is free to all, out-patients coming after the appointed hour of admission, or those desirous of having precedence, so that they may, by receiving early attention, retain their situations, are obliged to pay a late fee. Of course, patients holding subscribers’ recommendation notes take precedence of all others without fee. The attendance has been so large during the year that the Committee have resolved to enlarge the waiting- room; and the cases of Cancer requiring in-door treat- ment are becoming so numerous and urgent that an additional Ward, to accommodate 25 patients, is indis- pensable ; in order to carry out these alterations they have appealed to the public for a Building Fund, and they have every reason for congratulation on the result. The Committee also beg to express them thanks to the Worshipful the Mayor for his liberal donation, but especially for the earnest Christian charity by which he has sought to promote the welfare and interest of this Hospital. In conclusion they confidently appeal to the public for similar encouragement to enable them to extend the usefulness of an Institution which has proved itself worthy of the favour and support hitherto so liberally accorded to it. The Committee have also to express their thanks to the following ladies for donations of old linen : — Mrs. Salt, Grove-street, Miss Harrison, Argyle-strect, Birkenhead ; Mrs. Bright, Woolton ; Mrs. H. F. Penny, Wavertree. 5 ti j-h h COD T— < O o 03 CO CO Ph . o 03 r-H r-H r-H lJ <=* O CD o O < »o OS CO H M -43 03 z CO <M ! o 2 to c6 O & <hh o CD CD CO t-H PS „ cS ?h rCj -g -S 0 S g JO C3 ffl >> « : o . a> • • r-4 • - 4-3 : c3 :Ph • § : -§ • I • -4-> : 3 : O •“ B 03 03 Q C O •rH CD __ __j 03 i=^Lq © rH Pr i £ 03 ^ <T) .O B-P 3 <3 c3 ocffli-q CO PS o • rH c3 PS o fi *-d Pl c5 *73 O CD CM ^ co CD t-H r-H rH CO O lO (N O O r-H <M O co co r-H o i-H r-H O CD bO CO O 03 t-H CD lO CD CO *0 r-H i-H CD rH ?-H *0 CS By Balance brought down £55 13 S . id.

As statistical records offer few attractions to any save professional readers it has been thought advisable to supplement the Eeport with some explanatory remarks, having reference to the objects and mission of this Hospital, and its peculiar claim to special support. The diseases of which it takes cognizance may with propriety be ranged under two heads — constitutional, which includes cancer' and scrofula; and the acquired, which embraces every other variety. The former is- associated in the minds of most persons with some unfor- tunate hereditary taint, to which they themselves have little proclivity ; the latter with all that is repulsive to the feelings, and from which happily they anticipate especial exemption. “ All men think all men mortal but themselves.” They cannot realize the possibility, or are unwilling to admit the fact, that whether inherited by blood or acquired by contagion every member of the human family has indisputable right to a fair proportion of all these maladies, although by temperaments or circum- stances, favourable or the reverse, these may be modified,, intensified, or temporarily averted, yet “ To this complexion all at last must come.” The terms cancer and scrofula, though familiar to the- ear as household words, breathed but in whispers in each- 7 stricken home, designated by friends as some malignant disorder or kind of decline, proscribed however carefully in name, there is not a circle, rich or poor, from which these diseases can be excluded ; they have set the seal of their respective diathesis on every human being, and as “ There *s a point By nature fixed whence life must downward tend,” so the tendency of all chronic skin diseases, as life advances or vital powers decline, is to assume one or other of these fatal forms. The simple tumour, attended with but slight pain ; the enlarged gland, productive of little inconvenience ; strumous ulcers, apparently trivial ; warty excrescences, exciting but slight suspicion; all, however insignificant in their origin, may, by neglect or improper treatment, become malignant in their action, or degenerate into consumption. Now, as the province of this Hospital is to prevent such a consummation, it is ours to invite those so afflicted to seek early advice and assistance, to warn them of the danger in allowing these disorders to gain such hold upon their constitutions as to preclude all means of cure and hope of recovery, and this, too, in the face of an institution opening wide its gates to prevent such calamities, and daily, by its practical results, achieving the very boon it originally held out to others and now promises to all ; and to assure them emphatically that cancer in its primary stage, with a single point of manifestation in a temperament not favourable to its development, is perfectly amenable to treatment. Such being my conviction it becomes my duty in the cause of humanity to enter my protest against the opinion so popularly entertained regarding 8 its utter incurability, in every stage and form, inasmuch, as it has been the means of sacrificing many valuable lives ; thousands taught thus to regard their case as hopeless, and their disease as inflicting disgrace upon their family, have brooded over their misfortune in silence and sorrow, until, wasted alike by mental distress and physical suffering, death has relieved them of a burthen too heavy to bear. It is very difficult to decide whether these gloomy and unscientific views are more pernicious in their tendency and results than those erring in the opposite extreme, relative to diseases of the skin in general, which have heretofore been regarded as of so little moment as to be professionally unworthy of study, and socially undeserving of notice. The few who are practically and personally unacquainted with cutaneous affections may be excused for cherishing such fond belief, for the subject is neither inviting nor attractive ; yet if we reflect for one moment on their highly contagious properties, the mutual dependence of class upon class, ci Whatever link we’strike, Tenth, or ten-thousandth, breaks the chain alike if we bear in mind that every trade is obnoxious to one or other of these various maladies, and that no period of life enjoys immunity from their attack, it is impossible, socially or individually, to overrate their importance or that of a Hospital specially devoted to their successful treatment. Our calculation of the usefulness of such an institution must be based not merely upon the number relieved, but on the thousands that have thereby been saved from similar afflictions ; its value must be measured not so much by the diseases cured as by those which, but for it, might have become incurable. Had those suffering 9 from cancerous, scrofulous, lupoid ulcerations, and leprous affections no place for treatment, the sights on our very streets would ere long become so revolting — the dread of contagion so overpowering— loss of employment so general, and the consequences to society so serious — that, out of self-defence, workhouses would have to be increased fourfold to give the victims shelter, or lazar-houses rescusitated to enforce their seclusion. If the reader can, by any possibility, be ignorant of the nature and severity of these diseases, or incredulous as to their prevalence, let him visit the Hospital and witness for himself the cases which are daily brought under observation. We ’ll suppose him to have lost children, and that the recollection of such bereavement has but endeared others more fondly to his soul, let him look around at the little sufferers mutely appealing for commiseration ; they may not remind him of those whose joyous laugh and merry prattle were wont to bid him welcome and his cares beguile ; for have they not been nurtured in poverty and reared in filth ? their bodies covered with scabs, their heads with corruption, their faces with masks half-putrified — wearing but the sem- blance of humanity — from the purlieus and dens of our overcrowded streets they come not to excite sympathy but to obtain relief. Measured by time, how short the ispan of their existence — by disease, how long! Only ithink of what these might have been, and let them pass. We ’ll suppose that he has lost one that was dearer to Ihim than life itself, with cancer ; how many are there in :that crowded waiting-room — wives and mothers — whose dives are as important to their families and friends as ihers whose memory is still so fondly cherished; many 10 of them, alas ! through feelings of false delicacy, have kept the secret of their infirmities “not wisely but too well,” and have only sought assistance when the disease had reached its last and hopeless stage. We ’ll suppose him to take an interest in the labouring class ; mark, how fully it is represented with ulcers in the legs, boils, abscesses, and erysipelas, which incapacitate for work ; always bearing in mind that such incapacity in the strong man represents destitution in his family. Has he domestics on whose personal cleanliness the very health and happiness of his household depend? then, see for himself one whose clear complexion and robust frame would place her far above suspicion, covered with itch or a leper beneath her raiment from head to foot. We might draw attention to needlewomen, whose enervating, sedentary occupation, long hours, loss of rest, and imperfect nourishment, inducing acnoid pimples and blotches, unfit them for seeking or executing orders on which their very livelihood depends ; and to waiters who have to give up their places when attacked with eczematous or other eruptions. It would be easy thus to exemplify by cases the varied phases of disease, and, instead of these rough sketches, to produce pictures more highly finished, striking, and elaborate. But instead of the dark colours requisite for such portraiture, let me rather employ brighter tints to depict the effect, and bring into bolder relief the objects — curative and preventive — attained by this institution. Through all the protean forms of eczematous, impeti- genous, and pruriginous distempers, it has enabled 11 helpless infancy, unharmed, to ford their thrice-polluted stream and cross the stepping-stones of childhood. It has been the means of soothing these and s imil ar afflictions equally distressing, but more impatiently borne by the aged, Whose tottering' steps made Nature’s hour-glass tremble, As the few hasty sands were ebbing to the last. It has enabled the labourer in times like the present, ■when work was scarce and distress abundant, to keep a home, however impoverished, over his head, and retain his employment, by receiving immediate attention during the brief space allotted to his mid-day meal. It has, by keeping contagious diseases in abeyance, afforded protection to families whose servants, even when under treatment for such affections, use every precaution, however detrimental and lamentable the consequence, to evade detection, knowing that the penalty would be instant dismissal. It has induced numbers suffering from tumours to submit them to early treatment and removal by operation, or other remedies judiciously applied, before the system, vitiated with the virus, had converted them into fixed and fatal forms of cancer, Unseen, emitting odours inapproachable ; and if the face become The subject of its touch, so quick, so hideously transformed the features, By those known best scarce recognized, by friends avoided ; Or if some remain who wish them well, they wish them well in heaven. Will any, on referring to the classified list and exam- ining the work done during the past, refuse encourage- ment to this institution in future years ? Yet there was a time when this Hospital had to contend with difficul- ties almost insurmountable — not from honest, honourable adversaries, for these could have been openly and fear- lessly encountered, but from secret calumny and pro- fessional jealousy; for “ Envy will merit as its shade pursue. But like a shadow proves the substance true ; Carps at the charity it will not teach, And hates that excellence it cannot reach.” But still the work went bravely on, and from the eight hundred applicants of the first, the number steadily increased until in this, the close of our sixth, year, the tread of nearly thirty-two thousand human beings admitted within our portals has been duly echoed by relief so unequivocal as to have silenced for ever the clamorous voice of gratuitous detraction. The Hospital, besides being regularly attended by the principal practitioners in Liverpool, has been visited by some of the leading physicians of Great Britain and Ireland, who have made this branch of study their speciality, and its reputation, so far from being like other provincials — merely local — has attracted patients from all parts of the United Kingdom. These facts, in con- nection with the warm expressions of gratitude from those relieved, have cheered and encouraged the Medical Officers through many a weary hour; and the writer, who has never personally asked a favour for this Institu- tion, has all the more pleasure now that the opportunity is afforded him in offering his heartfelt thanks to those whose generous benevolence and earnest co-operation have raised this Hospital even to its present state of efficiency and usefulness. The work performed is but 13 an earnest of that which it is destined to accomplish. The good it has effected but foreshadows a mission still more extended and noble. . now ^is picture, embodying six years’ enthu- siastic, faithful however imperfect — labour, must bo deft on the easel. Your sympathy and charity, kind : reader, may have supplied its brighter colours ; sorrow .and affliction have imparted its darker shadows. Its 1 lights and shades are yet but very partially brought iinto relief ; the foreground must hereafter be filled 3 in •>with many a figure, and the pencil that has now faintly ( drawn its outline may touch but little of its perspective ; nt may next , year or the following be guided by other hands than mine, but the painting will still remain ;unfinished when yours and mine are laid powerless in : ;he dust, long, long after we have entered into our rest, 40, RoDNEY-STltEET, January 14 th, 1868. 14 CLASSIFIED LIST OF DISEASES.

Among those present were Messrs. William Tristram, Ansdell, Yeoward, Harrison, W. Bostock, jun., T. Lee, J. K. Main waring, C. F. Salt, Churton (the Coroner for Cheshire,) A. F. Thomson, W. L. Stroud, Bev. Mr. Welsh, Drs. Smyth, Caldwell, Mackinlay, Taylor, Dawson, Burrows, Henry, Homs, Galloway, &c., Messrs. H. Tristram, (hon. secretary,) Astrup Cariss, (auditor,) &c. &c. The meeting having been opened with prayer by the Bev. J. B. Welsh, A.M., Mr. Henry Tristram, honorary secretary, read the report of the Committee. Mr. Astrup Cariss read the financial statement. After Dr. Smyth had submitted his Beport, The Mayor: Gentlemen, it now becomes my very pleasing duty to propose in very brief but not less hearty terms the adoption of the report which has been read, and in doing so I can say this, that though the necessity for an institution of this kind may in times past, perhaps, have been questionable, now with the facts before us we cannot doubt that a necessity does exist for a special institution of this kind devoting itself to the amelioration of that special class of disorders which are here relieved. No doubt an institution of this kind labours under great difficulties. It naturally, to some extent, creates a jealousy on the part of the older institutions of the town, and in some degree, perhaps, it excites the jealousy of some members of the medical profession. No doubt an institution which deals with a particular class of diseases must, to some extent, provoke feelings of hostility and jealousy in « 19 : the town. But when, gentlemen, you hear that during the six years of the existence of this institution no less than 100,000 cases have been relieved, you will at once see that the extent of this hind of disease is such that it would he utterly impossible for any of the ■ existing institutions to relieve such distress and such misery. Those only who have witnessed this class of disease even in the case of the wealthy, who have known the sufferings which this disease ■ produces, can alone estimate what its effects must be, when, coupled ■ with the pain of the disease, there are attendant circumstances of •poverty, penury, and distress — those, I say, who are in wealthier circumstances have seen the suffeiings of their fellow-creatures, 1 labouring under the disorders with which this institutions deals, can only estimate — slightly, perhaps, after all— the greater distress and the greater suffeiings which must be entailed on the sons and i daughters of penury and distress. — (Applause.) It is impossible to '.listen to the report of the Medical Officer, whose kind attention, ; unwearied zeal, and unostentatious labours in connection with this i institution every one of us must value — (cheers) — it is impossible, I say, to listen to that tale of suffering and of distress without feeling l that this institution has peculiar claims upon the liberality and the >s»pport of the wealthier inhabitants of this great town of Liverpool. ! It may be a question, gentlemen, but this, perhaps, is not the time t to enter into it, whether all the hospitals ot the town might not be t united under one general committee, and whether in those hospitals (.different wards might not be formed, attended to by different i. medical men who have devoted themselves particularly to special cases of diseases, by which means perhaps greater economy might be exercised and greater results attained. It is possible that in the : future some such plan may be adopted, but until that plan is adopted [ am sure that the plan of medical men who have devoted them- p selves to one particular class of disease attending the different aospitals is the plan that is best calculated to meet the wants and :o meet the necessities of those who labour under different kinds of liseases.— (Hear, hear !) We know that in the higher ranks of the profession there are gentlemen, medical men of great experience, who t lave devoted themselves specially to particular kinds of disease, and ,ve know that when we labour under particular ailments we consult .hose men who have devoted themselves specially to that particular Mass of disease, and why should not the sons and daughters of overty have the same benefit which we, the wealthier class, possess ? |— (Applause.) Therefore I for one am glad that the poor in this neighbourhood and in this town have the advantages of the skill ■md attention of the kind and philanthropic gentleman who has levoted himself specially to these most painful and heart-rending liseases. — (Applause.) It must be very satisfactory to the Medical Officer and to those gentlemen who have laboured with . dm through evil report and good report to soe this institution 20 steadily increasing in the favour and in the support of the public. I see reference is made in the report to one gentleman, -who, I myself heard in the Council, very ably and very eloquently advocate the cause of this institution. — (Hear, hear!) — and to •whose exertions mainly it is that this institution has received an annual grant from the Corporation of £ 50 . — (Applause.) Gentlemen, we must not forget that this institution is purely a charitable one ; that, with the exception of the small amount of fees received from patients who are supposed to he in a wealthier position, and who are able to pay a late fee — with that exception the attendance and drug3 are given to the patients gratuitously. This ought, therefore, to commend itself to the charity of the bene- volent public. I am glad to see — and yet, at the same time, while it is a source of gladness to see that this institution is being more appreciated than it was, it is also with sorrow that we see that the number of those labouring under this form of disease is so largely in excess of what perhaps any of us believed, — I say I am glad to see, since such misery and such diseases exist, that each year a considerable accession of cases is brought -under your knowledge and under the treatment of this institution. — (Hear, hear!) As is very well stated in the report, it is a peculiar species of disease ; many labour under it in secret ; many don’t like to admit that they are labouring under this class of disease, and therefore carry about with them from day to day, and from week to week, the seeds of a disease which, if not arrested, must bring the sufferer ultimately to a painful and an early grave. — (Hear, hear!) But when an instiution of this kind is established, which deals specially with those cases, and when they meet with one so kind and so philanthropic to his patients as the Medical Officer of this institu- tion, I have no doubt that many persons who have hitherto secretly borne their sorrow come forward from time to time and receive the relief which this institution so generously affords. That it is so, and that it has been so, gentlemen, this report abundantly proves ; for, while I find that, in the year 1865 , 1,800 patients were treated, I find that, in 1867 , the number had increased to 3 , 164 . This, gentlemen, tells its own tale, and I am glad to see that, while the number of the patients who seek relief in this institution are increasing on the one hand, on the other the number of its friends and supporters from this large community is steadily increasing also. — (Hear, hear !) I will not trespass longer upon your attention. I now have the pleasure — and I assure you it is a great pleasure to me to be permitted to take part in the proceedings to-day, and to lend whatever aid I can to Dr. Smyth and to the members of the Committee in advancing the interests of this institution — I now have the pleasure to move— “ That the Report and Statement of Accounts as now pro- 21 sented be adopted, and that copies thereof be printed and circulated.” . Mr. C. F . Salt had very great pleasure in seconding the motion which was agreed to. ’ The Mayor, then proposed — “ That the thanks of the Meeting be given to the President, Vice-Presidents, Committee, Auditor, Treasurer, and Honorary Secretary, for their valuable services during the past year.” He was sure he had no occasion to say anything to commend this resolution to their acceptance. — (Hear, hear !) The motion was seconded by Dr. Henry, and carried unani- mously. The Mayor said : The next motion he had to make was — “That the thanks of the Subscribers and Donors of this Hospital be given to its Senior Honorary Surgeon, and to those Medical Men who have assisted him .” He was certain that no words of his would be wanting to commend this resolution to the meeting. The duties performed in that institu- tion, and the philanthropic and unpaid-for services which had been rendered by the Medical Officers, would, he was sure, commend the resolution in far more eloquent terms to their acceptance than any words he could utter. — (Applause.) Dr. Dawson, in seconding the motion, said he had intended to make some observations, but after the very lucid and able manner in which the Mayor had gone through the history of the institution and the diseases treated therein, there was nothing- left for him to say. Ho merely wished to state, in passing, how much they were indebted to the Mayor for the very able manner in which he had presided over that meeting and for the time he had devoted to the investigation of this subject. His Worship had come there not merely in his offical capacity as the Mayor simply, they were all proud to see him as such. — (Hear, hear!) — but he had thoroughly studied the nature of the institution, and, to use a peculiar phrase, was able “ to meet the case almost in particular.” (Laughter and applause.) Alluding to the many duties his Worship had to perform, Dr. Dawson said he had asked the Mayor a short time since how he managed to get through all his work, and the reply he received was that twice a week his Worship rose at three o’clock in the morning, and so tried to overtake his private duties, so that he might be able to devote the necessary time to his public ones. — (Applause.) They could see after this that a three o’clock in the morning study had been thrown into the speech the Mayor had just made. — (Laughter.) Although ho knew his Worship to bo a 22 diffident man, and one who did not like being praised, he hoped he would receive what he had said in the proper spirit — (Hear, hear !) The motion having been agreed to, Dr. Smtth briefly returned thanks in the name of the Medical Officers. The May on next proposed — “That the Committee for the ensuing year, 186S, consist of the following gentlemen : — Joseph Harrison, Esq., T.C., E. C. Janion, Esq., T.C., John Eogers, Esq., T.C.,* Eev. J. E. Welsh, A.M., Thos. Lee, Esq., J. K. Mainwaring, Esq., James M‘Neilledge, Esq., F. H. Powell, Esq., W. L. Stroud, Esq., A. F. Thomson, Esq., William Bostock, Esq., and H. Tristram, Hon. Sec , pro tem." This was seconded by Mr. Astrup Cariss, and agreed to. Mr. Harrisox moved — “ That the best thanks of this Meeting he accorded to the Worshipful the Mayor of Liverpool, Edward Whitley, Esq., for his kindness in presiding.” In the course of his remarks Mr. Harrison pointed out that the institution was appreciated, not only by the poor and afflicted of Liverpool, hut also by those in the neighbourhood, St. Helens, Che- shire, and other parts of the United Kingdom. It was only by visiting the institution that people could be made aware of its great value. In conclusion, he had no doubt that, after the kind support and countenance they had received from the Mayor, the institution would go on and prosper. Dr. Burrows seconded the motion, which was earned amid acclamation. The Mayor, in acknowledging the compliment, assured the meet- ing that, among the many duties which devolved upon him as Mayor, none were so congenial to his feelings as those which called upon him to unite with his fellow-men in relieving distress. If he had done any good in coming among them that day he had his own reward in that conviction. — (Applause.) The meeting then separated. Before the proceedings commenced the Mayor went through the various wards, and informed himself as to the internal economy and working of the institution.* I 23 GOVERNORS FOR LIFE.
